From new starter induction fun to Prep 6 Peak Challenge

Making the most of some lovely late summer sunshine, we have had a very busy start to the new academic year with activities for all ages.

Boarders' activities help to make new friends

From surfing trips to high wires and finishing with a fun BBQ and team games, this was a fabulous way for our new boarders to settle into life in their new school. It was also a chance for our Head Houseparent of Boyer House, Graham Bloxham to settle in a get to know his current flock!

Prep 6 Climb to Great Heights

Prep 6 conquered the second peak in their Three Peak Challenge, battling the elements to reach the summit of first Rough Tor and then Brown Willy. Lunch was a rather soggy affair, but the afternoon walk involved a little sunshine and a view of the beautiful North Cornwall Coast.  Next on the hit list is High Willhays, which Year 6 will tackle in June!

Year 7 and 8 Camp Out

The Year 7s and 8s have enjoyed a few days camping and undertaking conservation work. The Year 7s have been working towards their John Muir Awards and on Friday, after a night’s camping, they have been undertaking a beach clean as part of their conservation work.  They have been under the watchful eye of wardens on the Northam burrows.
